Landscape near Alwinton
This is a shot of the Landscape of the Cheviots driving along the road from Alwinton in Northumberland We were going to drive along to Barrowburn as there are tea rooms there but they were shut on a Monday. Plus the army were busy doing training and the red flags were out , so I didn't want to go any further. The Cheviots is a range of rolling hills which straddle the Anglo Scottish border between Northumberland and the Scottish Border. The English section is within the Northumberland National Park.

A lovely detailed image Helen with spot on exposure like it a lot, on full size you can see the sheep scattered over the hill sides, I noticed on an other site that you have a new camera looks like its working a treat.

Thank you for your comment Steve. Yes I have a new camera but have still kept my Nikon as a back up.

A lovely shot Helen. Sharp with lots of depth and contrasting colours between the foreground and distant green fields.
Maybe a crop top and bottom to give a panoramic look to the shot is in order. From the top to just above the hill on the right and the bottom to just below the stream on the right, have a go and see what you think.
Still like it loads though.

A lovely shot with a smashing winding road. However, I do agree with George's comment, knocking out that sky improves the shot no end. Firstly if takes the buildings off centre which is almost always compositionally an improvement. Secondly, with the wealth of wonderful content, I do find the sky a small distraction. Just scroll the picture down from here until the sky just disappears and see what you think.
